About the gears....the gears are related to score and three gears are pretty hard to get. That's all I am going to say about the gears.

Glad you guys like our game. It means a lot.

For anyone who grew up on Tiger Electronics LCD games or Nintendo's Game and Watch series, this app captures that experience to a T. From the LCD shadows on the screen to the button layout to the "instruction book" directions, everything about this app is obviously designed by people who appreciate the history of video games. The gameplay is appropriately simple, move left and right to add logs to the fire and burn the rampaging gorilla. The character movements, the bleeps and bloops, the menu (which is recreated to look like the back shell of an LCD game) all feel directly out of 1986. Look elsewhere for explosions and particle effects - this is a simple game for those who want a trip back to a simpler time and I couldn't enjoy it more.

Hey! I am the bearded guy in the video below and was informed that I am neglecting this forum. Apparently there are many lovers of retro technology here, so I was urged that I share this with you:

Default Party Drive promotion

Hope you guys are having a laugh or two from our programmer. Now for the official announcement:



Our LCD handheld game Monkey Labour for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is getting a relaunch! That's why we're throwing a party, so us retro gamers can get our hands dirty with real old-school gameplay, beat each other up on the leaderboards, but mostly just have fun and enjoy chatting about the games we grew up with.

We're complimenting this with a special promotion to make the game free on the relaunch date, March 15. Read all about it in the promotions forum:
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=87205

If you could help us spread the news to other fans of old-school technology, that would be awesome. Game webpage with a special party version is at:

Thanks,
Dawn of Play

Well, the Crazy LCD Effects you can see in the video, are for real.
So "update" just doesn't sound good enough to describe what we're really doing here.
